Agromin opens up its operations for schools (kindergarten through high school), nonprofit groups and youth organizations for one-hour field trips. Visitors learn how organic material is dropped off at the facility, cleaned of non-organic items, chopped, spread out in "wind rows," naturally composted by microorganisms and finally packaged for growers, landscapers and consumers.
"When kids understand the importance of creating a sustainable environment, recycling and reusing often becomes a lifelong habit," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "The sustainability message is what Agromin hopes to impart to the young visitors who come to our Oxnard facility."

Each month, Agromin receives more than 30,000 tons of organic material and then uses a safe, natural and sustainable process to transform the material into premium soil products. The results are more vigorous and healthier plants and gardens, and on the conservation side, the opportunity to close the recycling circle, allow more room in landfills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
